We partner with committed corporate/private sponsors and community based organizations who share our mission and focus of breaking the cycle of  at-risk young African American males and the desperation of; disillusionment, poverty, imprisonment and death. We believe as did Dr. Berky Nelson, that this society can break those chains through education and opportunity.
